Reaction catalysed
UDP-D-glucose + (S)-4-hydroxymandelonitrile <=> UDP + (S)-4-hydroxymandelonitrile beta-D-glucoside
Comment(s)
  • Acts on a wide range of substrates in vitro, including cyanohydrins, terpenoids, phenolics, hexanol derivatives and plant hormones, in a regiospecific manner.
  • Involved in the biosynthesis of the cyanogenic glucoside dhurrin in sorghum, along with EC 1.14.13.41 and EC 1.14.13.68.
  • This reaction prevents the disocciation and release of toxic hydrogen cyanide.
